1,000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented—the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting.
Revolutions, industrialization and socio-political upheavals marked 19th century life, and a variety of contrasting styles animated the world of art. Even among the realists, different influences and ideas prevailed. Yet in their quest for a faithful representation of perceived reality, they offered their public a counter-proposal to the Romantics and Classicists.
